MASQUE a.m. and the cocktail hour of a Saturday in January. Being a Middleton, and an honorable young man, to meet his obligations he hired " Big Shot” Scarlotti to “bump him off” so that he could collect his million dollar insurance policy which had a suicide clause in it. He gave his name as " Little Shot,” hence the play’s title. Imagine “Little Shot’s” dis¬ may when one hour after he arranged his demise his aged uncle died and left him eleven million dollars and no more need of death! Other things that he discovered included he was in love with his secre¬ tary, that he wasn’t in love with his ward, Pat, who lived most of the time at his expense in Paris, and that he couldn’t bear Henry, Pat’s latest attachme nt. Complications went from bad to worse when Henry was mistaken for Clyde and kidnapped by the “Big Shot’s” gang. Of course everything came out all right in the end—Henry returned safely, “Big Shot” proved to be a G-man in disguise, and Clyde and Mildred, his secretary, lived happily together there¬ after.

MASQUE Ray K. Linsley, Jr. James F. Moore . Robert B. Abbe . Michael Wilson . B. Allen Benjamin . G. Morton Fenner . Robert Day . Albert F. Smith Donald G. Downing . jf FIE earliest dramatic performance by students at Tech was the " Tech Minstrels” at the old Horticultural Hall on March 2 5, 1892. It took the form of an old-fashioned minstrel show, with black face soloists, chorus and end men. This initial venture was highly successful. Intermittant productions were the rule until 1911 when the organization incorporated its production with the Junior Week activities. Since then an annual show has been presented with but two ex¬ ceptions, the war years of 1917 and 1918. . . Vresident . Vice-President . Secretary . Treasierer . General Manager . Publicity Manager .

This year the Masque staged " The Little Shot” by Percival Wilde. Enthusiastically received by the student body, the play proved that the Masque has filled its prominent position among activities. " The Little Shot” was a farcical comedy in three acts. . . . Many strange things happen in New York City of an afternoon, but none quite so strange as what occurred to Clyde Middleton between 10:00 Page eighty-two

Abbe Robert M. Taft LL colleges must have a daily, weekly, or month¬ ly publication to dispense college news to stu¬ dents, faculty and alumni. With this purpose in mind the Tech News was organized in 1909. It supplemented the Journal, now the official alumni magazine, as the undergraduate’s main source of college news. For the past twenty-seven years, the staff has done much in improving the News to make it more in¬ teresting to those receiving it. The paper itself includes all the campus news and activities. Its editorials are both timely and thought-provoking. During the past year an outstanding feature of the News has been the series of cartoons picturing collegiate and educational oddities. Included with each copy of the paper is an eight page rotogravure section. This section, known as the " Collegiate Digest,” pictures personalities and events at colleges throughout the country. In addition to editing the news for the benefit of the student the News has as its secondary objective the training of men to carry on the traditions of the paper. The staff for the coming year, headed by Charles C. Bonin, will carry on the traditions of the past and will instill their new blood for the bet¬ terment of undergraduate interests. Page eighty-four
